BoatU.S. seeks grant applications

The BoatU.S. Foundation is seeking applications for its new Grassroots Grants Program.

"Our grant program looks for innovative projects that encourage boaters to be safe and keep our waterways clean," program manager Alanna Keating said in a statement.

"Projects have ranged from high-flying blimps carrying safety messages and radio public service announcements, to custom-made fuel spill containment kits and signs at boat ramps highlighting the threat of invasive species," she added.

Local groups, community organizations and nonprofits are eligible for grants of up to $4,000 each. A total of up to $50,000 is available this grant cycle. Local community groups need to have their applications in by Feb. 28.

Grant winners will be announced by June 15.
